To whom does ‘my’ life belong?

Morning: Psalms 87, 90; Genesis 29:1-20; Romans 14:1-23
Evening: Psalm 136; John 8:47-59

Paul writes, “We do not live to ourselves and we do not die to ourselves.” Isn’t this true?  We are autonomous, but we are communal creatures. Canadian culture supports and values my right to decide when I will die.  Some disagree about this.  Yet Paul upholds another important value – we do well not judge one another, though we disagree.  Taking these values together … It may help if I am aware of the impact on you of what I decide to do with my life.  My life may be an important part of your life too, and you may disagree.
